guilt by association is a jewish forte, but baiting journalists is jewbaiting!

The video was an edited version of a 2007 WWE wrestling video of the WrestleMania 23 promotion, where the President pretended to beat up WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.

(climax only!)

(full event!!)

In the video, the President is seen beating up McMahon who’s been replaced with a CNN logo. After the video shows Trump beating up on McMahon with the CNN logo on top, the screen goes to a logo that says, “FNN Fraud News Network.” The President tweeted out the following response with his video: “#FraudNewsCNN #FNN”. The official @POTUS handle also retweeted the video. The creator of the modified video was Reddit user HanAssholeSolo – RB

White House stays silent on anti-Semitic connection of Trump’s anti-CNN video
Dan Merica, CNN, Jul 3 2017

(CNN)President Donald Trump’s top aides are staying silent about the possible anti-Semitic, racist and anti-Muslim origins of a video the President tweeted Sunday, declining to answer a series of CNN questions about the video and its self-proclaimed originator. A Reddit user who has posted anti-Semitic graphics in the past has taken credit for the video that shows Trump pummeling a man with a CNN logo as his head. The video, which superimposes the CNN logo over WWE’s CEO Vince McMahon’s face, is titled, “Trump takes down fake news.” The Reddit user’s previous anti-Semitic posts were published before the video Trump tweeted. A senior White House official, in response to questions about the origins of the video, said Monday that it was not pulled from Reddit, an online message board site. “The video was not pulled from Reddit,” the official said, declining to answer other questions, including how the President was made aware of the video. An analysis from the ADL said the video appears to have been first posted from Reddit user “HanAssholeSolo.” The user also took credit for the GIF on Sunday, posting online:

Holy shit!! I wake up and have my morning coffee and who retweets my s—post but the MAGA EMPORER himself!!! I am honored!!

The video is not the user’s first foray into incendiary and controversial content. ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said his group’s analysis showed that “HanAssholeSolo” has a “consistent record of racism, anti-Semitism and bigotry.” Greenblatt said:

When those on the fringes of society feel their messaging is getting mainstream attention, that should raise alarms for all Pindosis across the political spectrum that reject hatred and bigotry. We must condemn these extremists and keep them on the margins of our society.

In Apr 2017, Donald Trump Jr tweeted:

To find out who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.

The Reddit user posted:

Spin the dreidel and find out.

The user has also posted racist and anti-Muslim content. Top White House aides, including Trump’s Director of Social Media Dan Scavino, have yet to speak out about the Reddit user taking credit for the video Trump posted. Here are some of the questions the White House has declined to answer:

    Where was the video from?

  • What process was used to vet the video?
  • Which White House staffers if any worked with Trump on the tweet?
  • How did the President come to see this video and decide to retweet it?
  • Did anyone at the White House bring the video to his attention?
  • Did the White House communications team or anyone else edit the video in any way before it was posted?
  • There appears to have been music added since the Reddit posting of the video. Was that done by White House communications?
  • Did the White House know before the tweet was sent that the video Trump posted on Sunday came from a Reddit user who posted anti-Semitic, racist content?
  • Is the White House concerned that Trump endorsed a Reddit user whose Reddit history is littered with racist, anti-Semitic content?

So far, though, the White House has looked to dismiss the video as insignificant. Tom Bossert, Trump’s homeland security adviser, defended Trump tweeting the video on ABC by arguing Trump is a “genuine president expressing himself genuinely.” Bossert said:

I think that no one would perceive that as a threat. I hope they don’t. But I do think that he’s beating up in a way on cable platforms that he has a right to respond to.
